About Lucent Dreaming

Hello! We're an independent magazine and creative community supporting emerging authors and artists worldwide. 

We publish fantastic authors and artists from all backgrounds in a beautiful, high-quality magazine. Unlike most markets, we offer feedback on almost every qualifying submission we receive because we want to support every writer who visits our inbox.

In the last two years we've grown beyond our mildest and wildest dreams. Because of you wonderful patrons, we've held events, perfomed a musical, held free writing workshops for underrepresented writers, and continued publishing. If you're interested in fostering the talents of creatives worldwide, become a Lucent Dreaming patron! Help us continue to support our contributors. Every £ allows us to publish amazing work by incredible people. 

All our patrons get exclusive full access to the PDF editions of our magazine as well as their name printed at the back of our upcoming issue on our supporters page. $5+ patrons will receive lovely things in the post (and endless love from the Lucent Dreaming team, of course).

If you love surreal, beautiful writing and artwork, we're absolutely going to be your new favourite magazine. 

Follow your dreams and help us follow ours!

We're excited to welcome you to the team.

From our editors: Jannat Ahmed, Joachim Buur, Jonas David, Samiha Meah and Christa Harwood
